Skip to comments.Japan's Scientists: Global warming isn't man-made
Posted on 02/25/2009 3:55:49 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
Japanese scientists have made a dramatic break with the UN and Western-backed hypothesis of climate change in a new report from its Energy Commission.
Three of the five researchers disagree with the UN's IPCC view that recent warming is primarily the consequence of man-made industrial emissions of greenhouse gases. Remarkably, the subtle and nuanced language typical in such reports has been set aside.
One of the five contributors compares computer climate modelling to ancient astrology. Others castigate the paucity of the US ground temperature data set used to support the hypothesis, and declare that the unambiguous warming trend from the mid-part of the 20th Century has ceased.
The report by Japan Society of Energy and Resources (JSER) is astonishing rebuke to international pressure, and a vote of confidence in Japan's native marine and astronomical research. Publicly-funded science in the West uniformly backs the hypothesis that industrial influence is primarily responsible for climate change, although fissures have appeared recently. Only one of the five top Japanese scientists commissioned here concurs with the man-made global warming hypothesis.
JSER is the academic society representing scientists from the energy and resource fields, and acts as a government advisory panel. The report appeared last month but has received curiously little attention. So The Register commissioned a translation of the document - the first to appear in the West in any form. Below you'll find some of the key findings - but first, a summary. [snip]

Godzilla is not a monster. He’s just misunderstood.
Japan’s been going through a 10+ year recession. They can’t afford Gore’s stupid scam.
Only because they ARE publicly funded.....
..... and wear the Enviro-Nazi Uniform.
So, has ANY US news organization picked up and run this story?
Ironic decision to come from the country that hosted “KYOTO” protocol
Pwrhaps it will be renamed the Obama Protocol
Anyone notice most of these type stories are coming from the UK or Canada. Our MSM is ignoring any article questioning man made global warming.

Lake Superior last froze over in 2003. It has now, again, frozen over. The frequency of freeze overs has historically been around once every 20 years. Now, in the last decade, we have seen two freeze overs.
The picture below is a beautiful satellite photo of Lake Superior from yesterday. With the well below freezing temperatures seen over the region Thursday night (-20 F), any isolated open water could have frozen.
There, fixed it.
It took them this long to find out Al Gore is an Alien?
